"Prop. 30 didn’t prove that Californians are willing to tax themselves, only that they're willing to tax a few others. In the wake of the election, more than a handful of news stories and commentaries reported that the California tax revolt, which began with Proposition 13 in 1978, is either dead or mortally wounded. But, as Mark Twain famously said, 'The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.' The reports may be based on wishful thinking on the part of the commentators and liberal bloggers, aided and abetted by a general funk among fiscal conservatives, taxpayers and free-market advocates who, understandably, were a bit down."
